Book Power Only Trucking Dispatch Service in USA
During our years in the industry we are proud to have gained a reputation across the USA .
Power only, also known as “tractor-only” or “bobtail” transportation, is a flexible and efficient approach to cargo hauling. This method involves providing the tractor (the engine and driver’s compartment) without the trailer. The tractor can be hooked up to various types of trailers, depending on the specific cargo requirements. This adaptability makes power-only solutions invaluable in a wide range of industries, from logistics and construction to manufacturing.
This style features a single drop in deck height, allowing for easy loading and unloading of taller cargo.
With two drops in deck height, this design offers even more flexibility for extremely tall shipments.
These trucks come with the added advantage of being able to extend the trailer's length, making them suitable for extra-long cargo.
There are several types of power-only services to meet different cargo transportation needs:
This style involves using a standard tractor to haul a standard dry van trailer. It’s suitable for transporting a wide range of general cargo, making it one of the most versatile power-only options.
Tractors in this style are typically equipped with a fifth wheel specifically designed for connecting to shipping containers. Container power-only is often used for intermodal transportation, moving containers to and from ports, rail yards, and distribution centers.
Power-only services using flatbed trailers are ideal for hauling oversized or irregularly shaped cargo. These trailers have a flat, open platform with no sides or roof, providing flexibility in transporting various loads, including construction materials and equipment.
Reefer power-only services involve using a refrigerated tractor to transport temperature-sensitive cargo. These tractors are equipped with refrigeration units to maintain specific temperature conditions inside the connected refrigerated trailer.
Some power-only services are specialized for moving heavy machinery or equipment. This may require specialized trailers, depending on the cargo’s size and weight.
Drop deck trailers, also known as step deck trailers, have a lower deck to accommodate taller cargo. Power-only services with drop deck trailers are suitable for transporting goods that exceed standard height limits.
Choosing a power only for your freight transportation needs offers several advantages. AJ Dispatch provides professional dispatch service for Power Only type of trailers.
